my world Tuesday A MY WORLD POST

     The Winter Hike ( 45th ) in the Hocking Hills (about 30 minutes from Lancaster,Ohio) took place on Saturday Jan. 16th 2010 and consisted of a 6-mile trek from Old Man’s Cave to Ash Cave.

I've been to the Hocking Hills several times and I love that area Joe! I would love to do the winter hike, but I tend not to stay outside in cold temps as much these days. Yep, I'm quite a sissy as I age. LOL I would have needed buckets of that hot chocolate.

Now I could probably do a hike along the beach with SMB...

FYI, I mentioned you in my newest blog post with a linkback to your blog. :-)

The beauty of the area is absolutely awesome.
Bean soup sounds good too. MB

Sounds like a neat hike! There is something about eating outside that makes taste so delicious! And surprisingly, it does not look like you have all that much snow - I see bear ground here and there!

I do not think I have ever seen that many people hiking at one time. Is that a record or what?

Looks like a very popular hike. Must be fun walking with so many people. The scenery is awsome.

June said...

What a spectacular place to hike!

I'm guessin' the bean soup came at the end of the hike and not the beginning. ;-)

Tony said...

I love those day hikes. Great photos!

I enjoyed this. Nearby we have the Leatherman's Cave. His story is similar to your guy's cave. Very interesting.

Great post.

Joe: Wonderful look at the Winter park, our Ohio mid January thaw doesn't look like it effected the woods as much as the yards. Those are wonderful photos.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wow---that is totally awesome, Joe. Did you make it the entire six miles??? That's a long hike --in snow especially. If you did make it, I'll bet you found some aches and pains you had not had before.... ha

Great pictures... Love the icicles and the icy waterfall/cascades... WOW!!!

Wow! I don't think I could hike six miles in weather like that -- maybe in the spring. That's a lot of people doing it too. You guys are tough there in the Hocking Hills area ;>)

That place looks amazing. Going on a winter hike there will be a unique experience. It is not everyday that you will see a frozen waterfall.
